The White House
Great story behind this picture of the white house in Newport Marina Brisbane, Australia.
The massive white building you can see in the picture fascinated me. I had no idea what it was? I thought maybe it's a showroom for the boats or offices for the marina. So I found my way around to the rear of the building, only to discover it was like a building site at the back.
But I wanted to take some shots of it, as the building itself was amazing. I had no sooner walked through the open gates in a fence, when an old man came out of one the garages.
And asked me what I was doing? I said I was just interested in the building and asked what it was? He said have you taken any photos, to which I replied no (Not yet) It's a house now can you get off as your trespassing. Wow ok
But I went back and spoke to a lady who lived next to it. I asked what was the story on the big white house. She said the inside was completed 10 years ago, and nothing as been done to it since. The neighbours have complained to the owner who is a multi millionaire who just lost interest in it. And can't be bothered to finish it, it's his father who does security on it.
It's such a damn shame, the white walls at the back are starting to discolour. I guess when you have that much money you can do or not do what you want.
I have included a screenshot of the back of the house from google maps.
